Underwater entrapment accidents are preventable. But only with the right equipment in place.
Tampa, Florida (PRWEB) December 19, 2011
Imagine a tranquil day at poolside with blue skies and calm waters. All of a sudden, there is the shocking realization that someone is missing. Tragically, a child is trapped against a drain cover at the bottom of the pool. Play It Safe Technologies, LLC has just released a new product to help prevent these terrible accidents. The new Safe Shield SDC 600 Stainless Steel Super-Duty Drain Cover is designed to fight the Hidden Killer: underwater entrapment.
"Many pool drain covers are simply not properly designed or strong enough to prevent underwater entrapment" said L. Steven Beckham the developer of the product and a founder of Play It Safe Technologies. "All too often, flimsy drain covers break or are not property attached and lead to these kind of accidents."
The SDC 600 has some impressive specifications:
- Features our new Safe-Drain technology
- Anti-entrapment design
- 10 gauge 316 stainless steel core
- Powder coated tough with non-conductive Alesta® AR 300, as manufactured by E.I. du Pont Nemours
- Rated at 600 gallons per minute
- Easy to install
- Certified by NSF International as complying with the latest applicable pool safety Standards
- Certified by NSF 50/ASME A112.19.8b - 2009 ANSI/APSP-16 - 2011
- Designed, manufactured and supported in the U.S.
"We designed the SDC 600 to be at the top of its class in reliability and durability," said Rex Cowan, co-founder of Play It Safe Technologies. "Especially when used in conjunction with our Safe Shied APS 130 Automatic Pump Shutoff, it provides highly fault-tolerant system of protection from underwater entrapment."
"Underwater entrapment accidents are preventable," said Cowan. "But only with the right equipment in place. We are on a mission to eliminate these deaths and injuries."
Play It Safe Technologies is based in Winter Haven, FL. The blog on their website provides a wealth of information on these topics.
The Safe Shield SDC 600 Super-Duty Stainless Steel Drain Cover is available for purchase through Amazon.com. The SDC 600 is available for a limited time at an introductory price of $599. The regular list price is $750.
